Monster Find and Cover Alphabet Activity
We had so much fun with the monster roll and cover math game, so I decided to make a letter sounds version too!
Students will review and reinforce letter sounds in a fun and engaging way while using these find and cover mats.
This is perfect for a silly monster theme or just for fun any time really.
We can’t wait to do this with lots of other themes too.

Playing the Monster Find and Cover Alphabet Game
This monster alphabet game is super simple to play!
They will begin by flipping over a letter sounds picture card. Then they will look at the picture and determine which sound is at the beginning of the word illustrated on the card.
Once they know the beginning sound represented on the card, they will then look for the corresponding letter on the silly monster.
Once they find the letter they will cover it with a button or another manipulative of your choice.
If you would like to differentiate for kids who need more practice with letter identification, you could use letter magnets, letter beads or another alphabet manipulative.
You will put the magnets in a pile or a container and students will take one out and find the corresponding match on the silly monster. Then cover the spot with a button. Students can match the letters directly or lowercase to uppercase match.
I hope the kids have a blast with this silly monster alphabet activity!
